Fed formand Jerome Powell Sammenligner Bitcoin til Guld

Federal Reserve formand Jerome Powell sagde, at han kan forestille en tilbagevenden til en tid, hvor flere valutaer er i brug i USA.

During Powell’s testimony before the Senate Banking Committee on Facebook’s plannedLibra cryptocurrency, han sagde: “The size of Facebook’s network means it could be, essentially, immediately systemically important.”

Though the initiative raised “a lot of serious concerns,” including privacy, hvidvaskning, consumer protection, and financial stability, he began to speak favorably about other cryptocurrencies.

“Almost no one uses bitcoin for payments, they use it more as an alternative to gold,” he said Thursday afternoon. “It’s a speculative store of value.”

Powell has stated in the past that the United States should not return to the gold standard. Some took the statement as referring to a call to “drop gold, buy bitcoin.”
